The polls have closed in Turkey’s 26th general election and the count is expected to begin shortly.
Electoral committees across the country’s 81 provinces - divided into 85 voting districts (Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir provinces have multiple districts) - are due to start the count, with the polls having closed at 5.00 p.m. local time (1500GMT).
More than 54 million Turks were eligible to vote in a poll to elect 550 deputies to the Grand National Assembly.
A total of 175,006 polling stations were open and nearly a million Turks living abroad cast their ballots at 113 embassies and consulates.
The vote was conducted under the closed list proportional representation system and was overseen by observers from civil society groups and political parties as well as international monitors.
Of the 16 parties registered to contest the election, opinion polls suggest four parties could pass the 10 percent threshold to gain seats in the assembly.
